The 1808 Tom Woods Show The Armenian Genocide and The U.S. Enters World War I

This ACU show consists of 2 episodes of The tom Woods Show.

Segment 1- The Armenian Genocide

In the early twentieth century, some 1.5 million Armenians perished in the Armenian genocide, at the hands of the Ottoman Turks. This blood-curdling episode in world history largely vanished from public awareness for much of the twentieth century, and is still unknown by most people. We examine its origins, its progress, and its ensuing disappearance.

About the Guest

Rouben Adalian is director of the Armenian National Institute. He holds a Ph.D. in history from UCLA, and has taught at George Washington University, Georgetown University, and Johns Hopkins University.



Segment 2-  The U.S. Enters World War I: Wilson’s Folly Revisited, a Century Later

It’s been exactly 100 years since the United States officially declared war on Germany and entered World War I. I review the momentous significance of that decision with Hunt Tooley, my favorite historian of the war.

About the Guest

Hunt Tooley is a professor of history and chairman of the department of history at Austin College.
